    I want more. I crave more than what I already have. I know I should be happy with what I have but I expect so much. I want more and it's probably killing me.

    their is nothing that will fill that empty spot. I can't stand living like this. I'm laughing but still feel so empty. I can't escape this darkness. I can't escape, me.
